Removed two small screws on door edge, pop out broken part, insert new part, replace screws. Took 2 minutes 18 seconds. Nice to have various door catches in the Kit. This was a repair on a 1979 Whirlpool Dryer. Great price & service!!

Simply slid new idler wheel on then popped thr tri ring on. The belt replacment was the hardest thing which was also easy. I think pulling the dryer away from the wall was the most difficult thing.

Shut of power to the dryer, removed the two screws that hold the control assembly on. Then rocked it forward and up to gain access. Unplugged the two wires and with a quarter turn, removed the old switch. Replaced switch and assembled in reverse order and it was good to go.

Upon receipt of the new vent kit, I removed the dryer from its location and took it in to the garage. This facilitated a roomier work space. The directions were easy to follow and the work to be performed was very easy in this setting.

The Drier started making an unusual noise, then stoped in the middle of the cycle. I attempted to start it again after a while and it did start to stop again after a few minutes.

This appliance is 14 years old. I debated whether or not if worth to be repaired. I decided to repair it since a new one of comparable model is about $600. Firts, Disconnect the appliance. Remove the control panel side covers and unscrew the screws in the bottom, (one on each side) Flip the control panel up. Now you have access to the 3 screws that hold the drier top on place. Remove the 3 screws and slide the panel towards you and lift standing on the front of the appliance. Set the top aside. The fron bottom panel is attached with two clips on top and hinges on two bottom clips. With a potty knife or flat screw press in each top clips and pulls the cover towards you and lift that will removed the cover. Next, un screw the two screws in the bottom of the top front panel. Disconect the wires of the close door switch. I usially take a picture of the connections before discconnecting anything so I can use as reference when putting it all together again. Remove the two top screws. Remove the spring of the door (two, one on each side), remove the lint trap. Be careful if you open the door after you remove the springs and make sure whne you close the door is snaped in the close position. Remove the front top panel. Next, remove the blower cover (two screws on the front of it, Remove the blower ring ( two screws) Remove the belt by pushing down the spring loaded pulley and sliding the belp to the side. Grabing the tub by the belt carfully lift it and slide it out from the drier enclosure. Using a 1/2 in socket wrench place it in the center of the blower and hold the motor shaft at the other end by the pulley using adjustable wrench. Unscrew and remove the blower. Remove the back cover of the blower (4 screws) Discconnect the motor harness and unclip the two clips holding the motor to the mount bracket. Remove the motor and replace with the new one. Follow these instructions in revers order. It was very easy and my drier is working great now. I inspected the belt and pulleys and lubricared all moving components and of course cleaned and vacum all debry and lint. I hope these instructions help you and good luck :)

Dryer door would not close and latch on both catches w/o pushing them shut individually.

Our make/model was not on the online instruction, but it was similar. Ours had a glass (plastic)front window in the door. To remove the top catch you had to take out the top four screws that hold the door together (philips head screws) allowing you to pull back the gray plastic strip to access the top latch, then replace it like in the online directions using a needle nose pliers. The bottom catch, once the two remaining the screws were out gives you access to the bottom catch. Remove it with the pliers and snap the new ones into place. You can completely take out the window when you replace the bottom latch if you want.

  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
(Always unplug dryer before making any repairs) I opened the dryer and checked the heating element. Making sure that the connection was good and nothing was damaged, I determined the problem was overheated wires. They melted and lots connection. I replaced them with the heating element wire connection kit. Easy to install and simple to get right. I cleaned the dryer again with a vaccum cleaner, removing all the lint, and checked the vents, making sure they were clear...I turned the breaker on (it was tripped when the dryer overheated)and everything worked great.

Loud squealing from newer Whirlpool Front Loading Dryer

  • Customer: Scott from Bloomington, IN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench (Adjustable)
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Dryer was making intermittent squealing noises sometimes it was amazingly loud, sometimes not so bad. Still, I figured this couldn't be good so I wanted to find a fix. Read the stories here and everything pointed to the 'idler pulley', so I figured I'd give it a try. For me, access was the hardest part -- my laundry room is small and I can't easily get the dryer out or move it around. Not a problem with the part, just my own setup. Important to note that this repair is best done through the BACK of the unit, not the front. Once I got access to the back (removing AC and Water used for the 'steam dry feature') I also had to disconnect several of the electrical connectors to get the unit fully apart. Good news -- the actual replacement of the pulley took about 1 minute! It was just all of the moving and disassembly that took so long. The original idler pulley had worked its way off of the shaft and was out of place and causing the squealing. All is well now, and I saved a bunch by doing it myself. No more squealing!

Dryer will not heat

  • Customer: Todd from Tucson, AZ

Searched for answers on what to do when my dryer wouldn't heat and came across PartSelect videos on how to troubleshoot and repair. So I followed the detailed videos step for step and turned out to be a very simple task to identify that the thermal cut off had blown. I ordered the kit and very fast delivery had the parts in my hand in two days. Following the repair video, and a double check of the wiring diagram, had me up and running again for less than $40. I don't see a need for going anywhere else for appliance parts in my future.
